Lemon Basil Ginger Iced Tea

Whenever I am entertaining, I like to serve lightly flavored water spa water. Usually, I will add cucumbers and citrus to a pitcher of water and let the flavors meld together for a few hours. It adds something special and unique without a lot of extra work. This lemon basil ginger iced best online casino tea was perfect.
Last week, I wanted to do something a little different and decided to make an iced tea. One of my favorite winter teas is lemon and ginger steeped in hot water with a touch of honey. For the iced tea, I added some fresh summer lemon basil, but standard basil can be used instead. Although it is an iced tea, it still has the light and delicate flavor of spa water. The lemon, basil, and ginger flavors are cleansing and refreshing.

Strawberry Mint Mojitos

It’s Wednesday¬†and time for another cocktail recipe. I usually stay in the kitchen and pass the bartending duties off to someone else, but recently I have traded in my wooden spoon for a cocktail stirrer. And the latest drink I’ve made are these strawberry mint mojitos.

We have been having some amazing and warm weather here on the West Coast. To celebrate the summer-like temperatures, I made fresh strawberry and mint mojitos. They are so refreshing and cool, perfect for a hot summer evening outside.


Blood Orange and Gin Cocktail

Happy Wednesday! Here is a blood orange and gin cocktail to brighten up your hump day!

I met some friends the other day for happy hour at one of my favorite cocktail spots in town. They make these amazing drinks using freshly squeezed citrus. The restaurant is owned by Suzanne Goin so it’s no surprise that they have great recipes and food! My friend I went to culinary school with is also a chef there so it is always fun to go sit at the bar, have a great cocktail, and chat! They have an open kitchen so you can see what’s cooking.
